Gili Islands Dive Center – Gili T. Gili Air, Gili Meno
Our Gili Islands dive center is located on Gili Air, a tropical-island dive resort right on the beach, away from the crowds of Gili Trawangan but close to all of the Gili Islands dive sites. Gili Air is placed on one of the most beautiful islands of the country, just 5 kilometers from Lombok. It is the second smallest of the Gili Islands, as well as being the ideal starting point if you wish to scuba dive Gilis. It’s the closest to mainland Lombok and regarded the middle ground among the three Gilis. From our Gili Air dive center we dive all of the surrounding Gili Islands dive sites – Gili Air, Gili Meno, Gili Trawangan.
